REFILL stations are being rolled out across Malmesbury as part of a new scheme.

Refill Malmesbury is on a mission to make refilling your water bottle as easy and convenient and cheap as possible, by introducing refill stations around the town.

The scheme encourages participating cafes, pubs, restaurants and other businesses to sign up to the free refill app.

They can then put a sticker in their window alerting passers-by to the fact they’re welcome to fill up their bottle for free.

Coinciding with National Refill Day, it launched on September 27.

The scheme is being coordinated by local group, Malmesbury Against Plastic.

A spokesperson for the group said: “Although Malmesbury sits at the heart of the English countryside, we know that the significant majority of plastic pollution in our oceans comes from land-based sources, and that means from towns and villages such as Malmesbury and surrounding Parishes.

“The Refill Malmesbury scheme helps save the planet from plastic pollution whilst saving you money.

“We also believe it will be great for businesses, as those that provide free water refills are viewed far more favourably by customers, who are more likely to return to them to make future purchases.”

"We’re still working our way through the town but so far we have had The Summer Cafe, The Whole Hog, The Kings Arms, The Old Bell, The Vaping Griffin and Thomas of Malmesbury."

Refill Malmesbury builds on the success of refill around the UK, which now boasts a network of over 12,000 Refill Stations.
